Clock King, on Purpose

"You ruined my life, archer...you and that quack doctor! Well, now you're both going to pay for that when the bomb goes off ... even if I die in the process!" 

Purpose is a cardinal villainous virtue.A life without purpose has no meaning. The wise Clock King knows this. His purpose in life is to destroy the enemies who destroyed his life. Well, not destroyed, really, because he's still alive. And has a groovy costume. And an entry in Who's Who. None of which he would have had, if his life had not been "ruined". In fact, if his life hadn't been "ruined", it wouldn't have had any purpose, and a life without purpose has no meaning. Hmm. Now we know why Clock King isn't cited as an exemplar of the villainous virtue of Logic.
